I’ve featured a few quirky hotels in these posts, and here’s another: the V8 in Germany, which offers guests the chance to sleep in beds made from cars.
The luxury hotel is based in Stuttgart’s Meilenwerk – an international hub for car dealers – and guests can choose to sleep in anything from a small family saloon to a large limousine.
Built inside the city’s old Boblingen Airport, the hotel also has rooms on three levels within the building’s former control tower. For around £312 ($488) a night, visitors can stay in the spacious Zeppelin Suite featuring a sauna, terrace and landscape views over the old airport grounds.
The four-star hotel incorporates 34 rooms, all themed around the car, so you can rest your head in an old Cadillac at a drive-in cinema, a Mercedes at a car-wash or a Morris Minor at a service station. The motoring motif extends to the reception and the restaurant.
